How Much Collagen Should You Take Every Day?

How much collagen should I take in a day?

It’s a question we often get from first-time Vital Proteins® users or curious prospective collagen customers: How much collagen should I take a day? 

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides are easily digested and soluble in cold or hot liquids, and one to two scoops a day is all you need! Adding a scoop of Collagen Peptides to food or beverages gives you the boost you need to support healthy hair, skin, nails and joints.**

Is There Such A Thing As The Perfect Serving Size?

Collagen is not one-size-fits-all, especially when considering how different everyone's lifestyles are. That's why we launched the first-ever Collagen Calculator

Using information like your age, sex and protein diet, our proprietary on-site equation, which was developed based on published research, helps to determine your recommended daily collagen intake. A perfect-for-you collagen serving size is a few prompts away. Just add in your information and we'll take care of the rest!

What If I Want to Try More Collagen?

We love that you love our products! But we do recommend you consult your doctor if you’re looking to increase your collagen intake from 1-2 scoops.

Which Collagen Products Do You Recommend?

As any Vital Proteins fan knows, our lineup includes a diverse range of products from our skin-loving Beauty Collagen™ to our Beef Gelatin, which is easily soluble in hot liquids (unlike our OG hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides, which is soluble in both hot and cold liquids.) While our collagen products all do share the same goal – to help support stronger hair, skin, nails, and joints** – some of them also contain individual functional ingredients that set them apart from the rest.

That being said, when it comes to first-time Vital Proteins users, we suggest trying our first-ever product: our hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides. Aside from being a fan-favorite, the Collagen Peptides is incredibly versatile since they’re not only unflavored but also easily soluble in both hot and cold liquids. Users like to add our Collagen Peptides to their morning (or mid-afternoon) coffee, smoothies or savory recipes.

If you fancy yourself a touch of flavor, we’ve got you covered. Our collagen comes in Collagen Water™, Collagen Creamer™, Collagen Shot and Collagen Bar™ form.
